    VLC supports command-line playback, but opens the GUI all the time, and I can't get it to hide

  • cmus

    Small, fast and powerful console music player for Unix-like operating systems.

    cmus is another Linux-only tool

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • mpd

    Music Player Daemon

    Music Player Daemon (MPD is another one I can't get to work at all. It also seems very much focused around being a music server, and library manager/player, where I just want an EXE that will play a sound file I throw at it.

  • musikcube

    a cross-platform, terminal-based music player, audio engine, metadata indexer, and server in c++

    musikcube works, but is very much a fully fledged music player/library manager/GUI for the command line, and doesn't seem to be something I can run and just play the specified file

  • mocp

    Music On Console Player

    Music on Console (MOC) is Linux-only, so won't work
